Recording information by donnica59SNAP-STAR

For the Finals In the Contest!

This song tells the story of a couple at a dance.
He tells his wife that she is free to dance and socialize with other men throughout the evening, but she should not forget that she is going home with him.
Inspiration for the song came from a very personal experience.

The songwriting team of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman wrote this song.
In Lonely Avenue: The Unlikely Life & Times of Doc Pomus, Alex Halberstadt explains that one night, Pomus found a wedding invitation in a hatbox, and back came his most vivid memory from his wedding: watching his brother Raoul dance with his new wife while Doc, who had polio, sat in his wheelchair.

Inspired, he stayed up all night writing the words to this song on the back of the invitation. Shuman had played him a soaring Latin melody that afternoon, and he wanted the words to sound like a poem translated into English - something along the lines of Pablo Neruda.
By the second verse, a hint of jealousy and vulnerability creeps in with the lyrics, "If he asks if you're all alone, can he take you home, you must tell him no."
Pomus ended his night of songwriting by writing down the words that would become the title: "Save The Last Dance For Me."
